The BOA IDR (ID reader) performs part recognition, tracking, and verification and is targeted at industries such as automotive, electronics, packaging, and pharmaceutical. The IDR reads and verifies 2-D matrix codes (PDF, QR, and Data Matrix), 1-D barcodes, printed characters, and patterns on labels, parts, and packages. Ethernet communication enables remote inspection monitoring. It promotes tracking and traceability with history logging, especially in pharmaceutical manufacturing and packaging.

Teledyne DALSA Launches BOA IDR for Identification and Verification Applications
BOA IDR Ideal for Automotive, Electronics, Packaging and Pharmaceutical Industries
WATERLOO, Ontario – Teledyne DALSA, a Teledyne Technologies company and a global leader in machine vision technology, launched BOA IDR product at the Automate 2011 show, at McCormick Place in Chicago. Teledyne DALSA’s BOA IDR is ideal for part recognition, tracking and verification and is targeted at industries such as automotive, electronics, packaging and pharmaceutical.
“BOA IDR is an affordable solution for a range of identification and quality control applications,” says Steve Geraghty, director of Teledyne DALSA Industrial Products. “As an image-based ID reader it offers robust 1D and 2D capabilities for part traceability, but it also offers trainable character and pattern recognition tools which customers can combine to satisfy a variety of identification and verification needs.
Many industries are using 2D matrix technology to track parts along the assembly process and throughout the product life cycle. In the automotive sector, for example, 2D tracking is used for error proofing to ensure parts are assembled in the correct order and in pharmaceutical manufacturing, product codes must be tracked within the supply chain to ensure customer safety. Verification of print quality on these packages is also important to assure future readability. BOA IDR provides these capabilities and also allows manufacturers to combine tracking with other inspection tasks, such as character reading and verification, to ensure all product markings match and are readable when they leave the factory floor.
Features and benefits of the BOA IDR include:
Identification and grading capabilities for part tracking based on codes, characters or patterns:
Reading and verifying 2D matrix codes, such as Data Matrix, PDF or QR codes
Reading and verifying 1D barcodes on labels and packages
Reading and verifying printed characters on labels and parts
Identifying and verifying patterns on products and parts
Ethernet communication between the BOA IDR and the factory enterprise
User administration controls help companies meet CFR Part 11 validation
Remote inspection monitoring via Ethernet
History logging to provide detailed information and traceability during the manufacturing process
IP67 rated enclosure with lens cap
Direct connection to external light sources
The BOA IDR is available immediately at a starting price of $1,595. For a downloadable image of the BOA vision system, please visit our online media kit.
